On the intersection of certain maximal subgroups of a finite group
J. Group Theory, in press
Abstract: Let $\Delta(G)$ denote the intersection of all non-normal maximal subgroups of a group G. We introduce the class of T2-groups which are defined as the groups G for which $G/\Delta(G)$ is a T-group, that is, a group in which normality is a transitive relation. Several results concerning the class T2 are discussed. In particular, if G is a solvable group, then Sylow permutability is a transitive relation in G if and only if every subgroup H of G is a T2-group such that the nilpotent residual of H is a Hall subgroup of H.
